ToggleSwitch (not the elaborate Gauge, but the Windows standard)

Microsoft introduced a ToggleSwitch in Windows 8. (Changed from rectangular to rounded Windows10). Sadly it's not available to a WPF developer unless you have a Universal or Store App.

It's really used all over a modern UI as the 'default' control for boolean switches instead of the classic checkbox.

In an ideal world I'd like to see Actipro implement this

a) as a separate control

b) as a (context driven) style for ToggleButton, CheckBox and RadioButton

 

In the meantime anyone an idea howto? (without adding additional libraries to my project)

 

Regards,

Jurgen

Hi Jurgen,

Thanks for the suggestion.  We will mark it down as a requested control for WPF.

The only way to add such a control really is to make a custom Control since it does have a unique appearance and rotates in "on" and "off" content based on the boolean value.
